  • Help installing.

    Hi, I;m getting ready to innstall and use Impex and need to know something.
    In the config file, for the source database information.... What will happen if I set the source exists to false?
    I will be doing a clean import and have the source database backed up and saved on my hard drive.
    Thanks in advance.

    You'll be importing from a non mysql/mssql system.

    If you have a sql backup, it needs to be restored

      How do you mean importing from a non mysql system?
      See... waht I thought was if I set that to false I cwould be able to just use the backed up sql file as ther source.... am I wrong on that?

        What system are you importing from ?

        If you have a backup SQL file, then you are importing from a database, though you will have to restore that database so that ImpEx can read from it.

          Ahhhh hehehe OK I figured something out ehehhe.... I was trying to go about this the easiest way here..... I thought it would be easiest to save a back up to the hard disk and let Impex use that file from the hard drive if possible... But I now see, after getting some much needed sleep hehehe, that it is indeed easier to just do it by using the existing DB on the other server.
          I was thinking because I was going from one domain to another the transfer would take a horrible amount of time but I own the server and the two domains are on the same server... so it shouldn't take as long as I thought....
          Thanks a lot guys. Off to destroy my site now heehehe.
